Back to North America

Here is a nice chronological History of Money in America from 1400's to present. Thanks to Serena Castleton for suggesting the link.

United States, originally consisted of 13 former British colonies situated on the eastern coast of North America, declared independence in 1776. More states later joined the Union. By 1958 there were 48 states spanning the full breath of North America from Atlantic to Pacific oceans. In 1959 Alaska joined the Union as the 49th and Hawaii as the 50th state. For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on United States.
